Xeomin - An Alternative to Botox

When the FDA approved Botox for cosmetic use in 2002, non-invasive proceduresbecame the first viable alternative to plastic surgery. By injecting a tiny amount of diluted botulinum toxin into muscles under the skin, medical providers could now reduce wrinkles, soften frown lines and combat other signs of aging during a short office visit.

Prior to Botox (and the advent of Radiesse and other dermal fillers), invasive plastic surgery, with its complications and lengthy recovery time, was the only proven solution for men and women who wanted to freshen their looks and regain the supple complexion of their youth.

In 2010, the FDA approved the use of Xeomin for improving moderate to severe frown lines (also known as glabellar lines) between the eyebrows. The FDA granted approval after clinical trials in the U.S. involving 547 adult patients. The studies concluded this treatment successfully reduced frown lines between the eyebrows.

It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, stopping contractions. Without constant muscle movement, wrinkles and frown lines soften or disappear.

 

It doesn't need to be refrigerated, making transport effortless. Ease of storage and it's additive-free formula gives it a longer shelf life.

With Xeomin treatments wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes become smoother and the skin above your eyebrows may appear "lifted" (aging eyebrows have a weary look). Sagging, wrinkled skin makes you look tired, but this treatment perks up your face, making you appear more alert and relaxed. The degree of line and wrinkle reduction is related to the severity of the patient's condition and the amount of injection used during treatment. The injection usually lasts three months.

Xeomin Treatments in Studio City

Xeomin is a recent development in advanced aesthetics and is proving to be exceptionally effective for skin smoothing and for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. While this product is like BOTOX in that it reduces the muscle motion producing lines, creases, and wrinkles, it is a purer formula. It is free from additives and this fact alone may reduce the risk for developing antibodies that will eventually limit how well a product works.

Is Xeomin Right for Me?

This product can help you look younger by smoothing lines and wrinkles. It is often the right choice for those who are unhappy with the appearance of:

  • Fine facial lines
  • Deep forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines and creases in the chin area

How does Xeomin Work?

Xeomin is an FDA-approved treatment to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. A smooth, unlined brow naturally looks younger. It works by affecting the nerves that trigger muscle motion. These muscle layers are constantly in motion, and eventually create wrinkles and lines.

As with any injectable product, the amount used and the area into which it is injected could not be more important. At our Studio City Medspa, we are proud to be known for our exceptional skill in injecting Xeomin, and for helping our clients look younger, fresher, and – natural.

What to Expect: Xeomin Treatment

This FDA-approved cosmetic can create a dramatic improvement – and takes only about 10 to 20 minutes to perform. You will not need any anesthetic, but some clients are more comfortable with a topical numbing cream applied first. The injections feel like a tiny pinch and are not particularly painful.

Xeomin Recovery Time

There is no recovery time with Xeomin treatments. You will have no restrictions and can get your treatment during lunch break, and then return to work as normal. One of the greatest advantages of this product is that you do not have to worry about taking time away from your normal routine – just get the injections in a short appointment and return to life as usual. Post treatment, you cannot lie down for four hours, and avoid any deep massage of the area for four days.

Patients who don't respond well to Botox may fare better with Xeomin. IncobotulinumtoxinA, the only active ingredient, isn't coated with protein like Botox. Because it contains a plain form of botulinum toxin type A, there's nothing to interfere with its functionality even in the most sensitive patients.

Xeomin FAQs

Are there any side effects from Xeomin treatments?

Most clients experience no side effects, other than a slight redness at the injection site. We pride ourselves on being able to limit any potential bruising in the injections of Xeomin or other injectables. It is all about the skill and care with which the product is applied to the area needing treatment. It is very rare for any serious side effects to occur with Xeomin injections. Some patients feel a mild itchy sensation.

How long will it take for Xeomin to work?

The optimum improvement is achieved after 30 days, but typically, smoother skin begins to be evident about three to four days after you get your injections. The product lasts for about three months, although some clients may need the next treatment sooner, or find that the smoothing effect lasts longer than expected – everyone is slightly different.

Is Xeomin better than BOTOX?

Many of our clients get regular BOTOX treatments, and swear by the product. Some others are switching to Xeomin as it is a purer formula and believed to be less likely to product an allergic reaction. Both products work by affecting the nerves that trigger muscle motion beneath the skin, causing them to relax and stop creating the creases and lines due to facial motion.

A difference in Xeomin is that it contains only the key ingredient that causes the muscle relaxation, without the additional proteins found in BOTOX. It is a personal decision, and if you have been getting excellent results with BOTOX, you do not have any reason to change to a new product unless you choose to do so.

Is Xeomin proven to get results?

Yes. This FDA-approved treatment is effective in treating facial furrows, wrinkles, and lines. While currently approved to treat creases between the brows, it is can be used “off-label” as it is very effective in treating crow’s feet and lines and wrinkles in the chin area.

Is it safe to get Xeomin treatments?

The results of the treatment are temporary and safe. It is approved by the FDA for use and is considered a safe injectable – and certainly safer than undergoing surgery, along with the risks of anesthetic, infections, and other problems. Certain people have physical conditions that make them an inappropriate candidate for the treatment, but this is very rare. As with any injectable, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should wait to get treatment. If you take muscle relaxants, allergy or cold medicines, sleep medication, or blood thinners, you may not be an appropriate candidate for this treatment.

How many units of Xeomin are used in treating facial wrinkles?

Every person is different, but typical clients require about 20 units per treatment.

Who makes Xeomin?

There are three different types of products made with botulinum: Xeomin, BOTOX, and Dysport. Xeomin is produced by Merz Pharma, the same company that developed Radiesse. It has been used across Europe since 2008 and got FDA approval in 2011. Since that time, it has consistently been used to successfully treat facial lines, wrinkles, and creases.
